The Blue Jackets and Penguins face off at 7 p.m. tonight at Nationwide Arena.
It's been an eventful series between the two so far, with the CBJ winning round one handily and then coming back in period three to salvage a point at Pittsburgh in the second game after the All-Star Break.
Sidney Crosby surpassed his 1,000th career point in the Pens' win over Winnipeg on Thursday.
While these two teams have a playoff history, they also have a unique history relating to the friendship of head coaches John Tortorella and Mike Sullivan.
